This is a repost from August 2010. :)
I love receiving mail from readers! Especially when they recommend or share an eco-friendly idea or project. When I get "fan" mail, I secretly say to myself, "You love me! You really love me!" Okay, maybe it's not so secretly. Maybe I belt it out in a sing songy voice while doing a river dance. My husband thinks I'm crazy.
I received an email from fellow blogger and Earth Friendly Weddings reader, Kristy of I'm Gonna Marry You Someday, about an awesome DIY project she took on for her own wedding. Rather than purchase bags for the out of town guests, Kristy took a big leap and created her own out of newspapers. The result!? Incredibly cute, wonderfully graphic bags that are truly eco-friendly. And hello!? Completely free! Each bag uses only two pieces of tape, which is promising for those of you who end up with paint in your hair and tape all over your clothes when you try to DIY. Check out the tutorial here!
